Thank you so much Cecelia for photographing the markers. You did a wonderful job. I am very please with the multiple views. It will surely help to fill out my family tree.

RE: Barry Curb, #114344112
Thank you for all your work on the Curb family. The Minnie Curb obituary confirms that Cyril Edward Curb was in fact her and Victor's son. Now I can have Minnie linked to her son's memorials (There are two of them). I have learned this morning that her son Cyril is listed on the memorial at Cambridge American Cemetery on the "Tablets of the Missing". I believe that his body was never recovered when his plane crashed during World War II (1943) off the coast of England.

I have also located the husband of Minnie (Victor). He passed away in December 1981 in Kenosha, WI. At present there is no Find-A-Grave memorial for him. I am attempting to locate an obituary in Wisconsin.

Again, thank you for all those extra steps you took to help clear up this mystery. Best Wishes.

OOPS - accidentally got two copies of this memorial for Homer Jones in Lakeview Cemeter - Blackduck. Want to remove one - the are exactly the same. How about removing this one: # 113275171. I was there taking pictures today and am adding them now to findagrave.
Thank you, Ceceila!

Barry Curb, #114344112
Thank you Cecelia, for the editing and the linking of this memorial to those of his parents. In that, I presume, you are in the Bemidji area, do you have any information on "Minnie Louise Curb"? MHS lists her as passing away on 24 May 1985 in Beltrami Co., MN. She is the mother of "Cyril E. Curb, #33274627", also listed on Find-A-Grave as "TSgt Cyril E. Curb, #56288946". I have been looking for an obituary for Minnie and just cannot seem to find one. Any suggestions or help would really be appreciated. Best Wishes.

What a fantastic article about his death! Great information to pass on - thank you so much for sharing this. I would like to know more about the source of this article. Are there a lot of old books, newspapers, etc. in Bemidji for researching this kind of history?

Note the stone in Fairview with the Ch spelling. I have already transferred his record to Maureen so you need to ask her to add your information to the Ch entry being the records are supposed to be exactly what is on the stone. A note about the alternative spelling (from a newspaper?) would be great for following generations who know less about folks from the "old country." Thanks, Grace

Dorsey at Wildwood Cemetery
I was in Pillager MN today and took photos of Agnes and Edward Dorsey's graves. They are in Wildwood Cemetery not Pillager Cemetery. Can you make this change?
